Complaint lodged over burqa mural
by Josephine Tovey
It has become a lightning rod in the public debate about the right of Muslim women to wear the burqa, attracting protests, the censure of a mayor and messages of support from talkback radio.
But now the Newtown mural of a woman in a full-face Muslim covering with a strike symbol over her face and the words "Say No to the Burqa" is the subject of an anti-discrimination complaint.
Cigdem Aydemir, 27, a Muslim, artist and high-school art teacher, said she felt "completely offended and insulted" when she saw the mural pop up in her neighbourhood.
